Rogers BlackBerry Plans Show Curve 8900, Fido launch

Rogers Fido BBerry Leaks

Rogers' plans for its BlackBerry lineup will include both an aggressive launch of the Curve 8900 and an expansion of the smartphones to its budget brand Fido, tips from BGR suggest. The Canadian provider should get the 2G-only but GPS and Wi-Fi equipped device in January and will reportedly price it substantially under the Bold, offering it at $150 on a three-year plan with both voice and data.

Additionally, Fido should finally gain BlackBerry service after regularly being limited to the iPhone and a small number of Windows Mobile devices. The BlackBerry Pearl 8120 is said due in mid-December and should be followed in early 2009 by the Pearl Flip 8220. Both are likely to take advantage of Talkspot for Wi-Fi calling. Pricing for the 8120 is unknown, though the 8220 should carry the same $50 price as it does on Rogers.

Extra announcements should see a pink version of the BlackBerry Bold released on Rogers and will potentially include new data plans for both it and Fido as early as the end of this week, though this last move would come relatively quickly after an October plan update and has no specific details.
